Great Neck Public Schools Board of Education Student Delegates, representing the district’s secondary schools, were introduced to the community at the October board meeting. Selected by their schools, these non-voting delegates, are encouraged to express opinions about educational and student matters, voice school issues or concerns and take pertinent board agenda items back to their respective schools.

Board President Barbara Berkowitz and Superintendent Teresa Prendergast thanked the students for their service and for volunteering their time to represent their schools at board of education meetings.

The board has been in the vanguard regarding student participation in school affairs, initiating student delegates in 1975, a practice the state did not require until 2005.
